The city's goal for sidewalks, curbs and gutters is to maintain a safe, unobstructed route for pedestrians and ensure proper drainage along our streets. Curb and gutter maintenance is the responsibility of the city. Although California state code requires that property owners maintain the portion of sidewalk adjacent to their property, the city does perform sidewalk repair and reconstruction as resources permit. In addition, the city will evaluate reports of hazardous sidewalk conditions and implement temporary patches or grinding if warranted.

To report deteriorated or obstructed sidewalks, curbs or gutters within the public right-of-way, please contact the General Services Department at 916-727-4770, or use our service request form to submit a service request directly to the department.
